Improving the Lives of the Urban Extreme Poor (ILUEP): Understanding Urban Livelihood Trajectories in Bangladesh

This research project follows the livelihood trajectories of urban extreme poor people who were selected into Concern’s integrated livelihoods support programme in urban Dhaka and Chittagong. The research seeks to understand why different households follow different livelihood trajectories, during and after their participation in the ILUEP programme and to identify any additional support that could provide the prospects of sustainable movements out of extreme poverty for ILUEP participants, and to strengthen their resilience against future livelihood shocks and stresses.
